this is my first time tovenice and i would like to know the best way of getting from treviso airport to my hotel villa edera [lido]

RE: airport tohotel

by qaminari

Why don't you check your hotel's website? As if often the case for Venetian hotels, it gives directions for getting there by vaporetto: http://www.hotelvillaedera.com/en/location.html
Ryanair runs a bus from Treviso Airport to Venice's bus station at Piazzale Roma (I'm sure details are on Ryanair's website and/or that of Treviso Airport), where you can change to the vaporetto: line 52 to the Lido is a fast one (I thought 51 was also a fast one, but it's not mentioned on the hotel's website).

Travel Tips for Venice

Evening in St. Mark Square

by aliante1981

My favorite memory is an evening at Piazza S. Marco, in front of the Cathedral. It would be quite dark already if not for the lamplights... So I take my place at an open-air table at one of the restaurants and there are small orchestras playing music... A truly enchanting evening that was!

Creative Photography

by Hopkid

I saw in a photography magazine where this photographer had used longer exposures and smaller lens openings to create interesting, artsy photos using the natural movement of the water in the canals to blur the reflections of archichiteture, people, and other things. I tried this when I went to Venice and although I couldn't totally replicate what I had seen in the magazine, I got some cool and different photos. I urge you to try the same and see what you get!

The key is to use longer exposures that will not be fast enough to "stop" the action. If you have a camera with a shutter priority setting, you can achieve this by setting a speed that is slower than what the camera would normally program. Similarly, you can also set your f-stop/lens opening to as small as possible, thus increasing the shutter speed needed to obtain a correctly exposed image. Use a tripod if you can or steady yourself on a railing or wall to elminiate camera shake.

Good luck and most of all have fun!

Masterly Veneziano architecture (1)

by Trekki

Of course most of us come to visit Venezia for her fascinating and out of the world buildings, churches and palazzos. And yes, no matter how much I disdain the Eurodisney day tourists who believe it is all just built recently to please their eyes, Venezia presents herself as a huge open air museum, such as for example Vienna and other cities with most marvellous masterpieces of buildings all over in town.
But what fascinated me most is the harmony these so many buildings of very much different building styles finally have. Yes, with a little bit reading beforehand and a good guide book, it is possible to find out if a building is Byzantine or Gothic or Renaissance – but seen next to each other, they have so many similarities that one could believe they are of same age. The reason for this is quite easy. Venezia had a very prominent role in sea trade with the East. Marco Polo and other merchanst travelled to Asia and brought back goods as well as descriptions of the building styles over there. Also, as once at a time, Venezia had been part of Byzantine Empire, a lot of influence came from there as well. And, being well aware of her power, the city’s officials wanted to put distance between them and the other empires – also in terms of building style, demonstrating their special position. .
Byzantine style:
The most important and well known example of finest Byzantine architecture is definitely Torcello and its two churches of Santa Maria Assunta (with the fine mosaics) and Santa Fosca (photo 1; with the typical Byzantine proportions). Also, chiesa SS Maria e Donato (photo 2) on Murano is of the same period.
Of the secular buildings, Fondaco dei Turchi (photo 3) on Canal Grande is also Byzantine.
Basilica San Marco has been started in Byzantine epoch as well, but it has been modified over the years, so that it cannot be regarded as pure Byzantine.

Gothic style:
The masterpiece of Venezia’s interpretation of Gothic is for sure the magnificent Palazzo Ducale (photo 5) with the very much harmonic arcades and pillars and Ca’D’Oro (photo 4) at Canal Grande.

Now look at the photos of Ca’D’Oro and Fondaco dei Turchi – they look of similar style at the first view – but there are 200 years between them !

Packing List

by venica

Suitcase with wheels or a ruckpack...remember that you very often have to walk some to get to the hotel. You can pay someone to carry your bags, can be vise and it does not cost that much to do so. If you arrive Venice by a water bus from airport and getting of at San Marco you can usually find someone there to help you with your luggage. When leaving, ask at the hotel for help. Once again; if several people are travelling together, using a water Taxi can be ok. But ; do agree about the price before you board it....If you look at it as a sighseeing it's not that expencive though! You need some good shoes to walk around. Umbrella or a raincoat is also needed and offcourse a bikini or shorts for a swim at Lido if it's summer time. In winter: warm clothes that can keep the cold wind out! Nothing special is required for Italy/Venice- just bring what you normally need if somthing.
Do you know that the hospital in Venice is situated in a 'grand palazzo'. The most beautiful hospital I know of. You find it easily in the area north in Castello. Once again; buy a good map :-) Price is like in Northern Europe = expencive but no problem to buy what you need. Buy a 5 or 7 days card for the vaporetto, then it's easy and cheap to get around. Wherever you go you are never far away from Grand Canal and a vaporetto stop a 'fermata'!
